To me it means(To me this is what it means) an expression, a way out of day to day reality. It builds the world up and gives you a new pavement - you know? In a way it is a rebelliuos, punk thing..... certianly at 16, 19 what ever your age, that is how it feels. When you skate, you are really living compared to other people - people in my school, or in my enviroment.
I guess yor making an statement, showing off your creative side. You can't draw, write a poem or play music but you can skate!
If people try and stop you. Stand up and ask them. "Waht are you going to do?" For what can they do? NOTHING!!!
